Egetal is about bringing the intimate nature of jewellery to the urban scale.
The fitout on Little Collins St draws upon the material qualities of jewellery and scales it up for the street. A large display case plays on the idea of oversized jewellery boxes and geometric pendants which both houses the bespoke pieces, and signals to the passer by that something precious is inside.
The project draws upon the materiality and tectonic of jewellery and transforms it from something that adorns the body to something that adorns a building. Delicate materials, geometric forms, and the form of the ‘jewellery box’ is translated into a larger urban scale using different textured glass and steel work lacing the fragments together.
On the interior, warm hues and natural materials become the backdrop to unique hand-crafted rings, necklaces, bangles, and earrings.
